I am about to undertake a 'project' - i am either bored or crazy, but i am gonna try it.


i found an old marlin glenfeild model 10, 22 bolt action in a buddy's attic and need to

KNOCK THE RUST off of it.  I want to restore it to a decent blue barrel and action.

any ways to facilitate this?  I purchased Blue Wonder Gun Blue Touch Up kit and was

gonna give this a whirl.  I also bought a rust and blue stripper.  Am i on the right track?


thanks in advance for the knowledge.  I look forward to the replies.

How intact is the guns' old blue? there are ways to salvage what's there. Remember that even with bluing salts and a professional, it is never going to be as uniform and free of imperfections, as the old finish.

I tired the Blue Wonder stuff on a rifle.   Leaves a blue/gold/brown finish.

You'll end up going back over the work with Birchwood Casey's stuff  or Oxphonate from Brownells.


The rust and blueing stripper will be a big help.

Important step is to POLISH the parts.  The quality of the finish in a blueing job is in direct proportion to the work done beforhand.
